The aroma screams Pernod and the initial flavour is heavy on coffee notes. Behind that lies marshmallow. This is a strange combination but is a curiosity only matched by the curious slow melt that seems to coat the inside of your mouth with liquid chocolate. Just as with the Venezuela 75% this gives the sense that it has a long conch given by the lack of heavy tannins or acids. This is almost Venzy like, perhaps even a Porcelana-like quality.
As you try another square, these flavours should soften and become creamier. There will still be a noticeable acidity, but far less than Chapon's Rio Caribe and Chuao and is more apt for those who appreciate mellow flavours.
